Every since I was little, I have always been afraid of pumpkins. That whole cutting off the top and sticking your hand into some dark, slimy, mysterious place that your hands really shouldn’t go.
As a teen, the parents stopped doing the whole carving pumpkin thing, so I was off the hook for the longest time, but then I began to have children.
And the children began to want to carve pumpkins.
And Superman began to work 2 jobs.
And I began to have to cut tops off and stick my hands into dark, slimy, mysterious places that they didn’t belong.
Oh, the things parents do for their children.
Today’s TWD is Pumpkin Muffins, and it was Kelly from Sounding My Barbaric Gulp’s turn to pick our recipe.
I didn’t change much in this recipe.
I substituted mini chocolate chips for the raisins, because I like raisins in my baked goods about as much as I like sticking my hand in a pumpkin.
I also candied the sunflower seeds for the topping.
These muffins are hearty, moist, and good.
If you’d like to make these great muffins, you’ll find the recipe at Kelly’s blog.
